Hello, i have a housemate who moved in a couple of months back.
I think she has mental problems.
She is up cleaning and hoovering at 4am. And when i asked her why she said it is because she has insomnia and cant sleep.
Well who in their right mind when they cant sleep, hoovers and mops instead.
The first day she moved in, she binned half the stuff in the kitchen, claiming it was disgusting, most of it because she assumed belonged to the
previous housemates (even if it did she shouldnt be dumping it anyway).
She continuously tells us how supposedly filthy the house is, even though guests or the landlord say the house is perfectly clean.
She is constantly binning stuff, if you so much as leave a newspaper on the table for a few hours it will be in the bin.
All she ever talks to me about is mopping and cleaning nothing else.
This wouldnt be a problem normally, but every few days she is stressed or depressed and takes it out on me, knocking on my door late at night asking
why i havent hoovered the house that day or things like that.
Whenever i tell her look you need to stop the obsessiveness and stressing, she apologises and says she didnt mean it that way. And then a few days
later flips out again.
She is far from an angel, she smokes in the house, when it is a non smoking house, she re-arranges everything even though they arent hers. She
constantly has strangers staying over, who i have no clue who they are, and stays up till late being loud making it hard for me to sleep. She in her
mind has taken over the house as if it is hers.
I have told the landlord in the past, who always says well you and the other housemates need to talk to her, which we do, but then she flips out a few
days later again.
I am a happy person, a positive person, i spend my life around happy people, im so sick of a depressive, miserable woman constantly stressing out at
me all the time and screaming at me about cleaning the house when it is perfectly clean.
What should i do? The landlord doesnt seem to think it is his responsibility to tell her to stop bossing us around.
I dont want to move out as i have lots of friends in the area and i like being here.
I shouldnt feel stressed out and uncomfortable in the place i live in though.
If anyone could reply id appreciate it. A lot.
